[ARCHIVED] Town Seeks Input on Possible Workshop Series

getinvolved3.gif

The Town of Ashland is currently evaluating the possibility of hosting an annual series of citizen education workshops much like the more than 1,300 citizen academies conducted in communities around the country. These workshops would give the people who live and/or work in Ashland an in-depth look at how the Town operates, provide an opportunity for citizens to talk with town leadership and senior staff about the issues facing the town, and open the door to citizens who would like to be more involved in our community.

Workshops would be limited to a group of 20-25 participants each year to enhance the depth and broaden the spectrum of activities to be included. Prospective sessions might include police demonstrations, tours of Town facilities, budget discussions with our finance director, leaf collection and other public works demonstrations, guest speakers from the Town's regional partners, and frequent opportunities to converse with town leaders and provide your feedback. Completing the workshop series will be a favorable consideration for citizens seeking appointment to a town board, commission or committee.

We want to design a program that you would like to attend. To that end, we've put together an eight-question, multiple-choice survey that will help us customize some of the program details to the people of Ashland and what you'd like best in a workshop series. Participants will have the opportunity to provide additional feedback and continue to shape the program through their participation.

Please help us now by taking our short survey.
